Brass on Beige Jewelry Displays

I sell jewelry in a small shop, which is part of the Cheltenham Center for the Arts. They have monthly Trunk Shows, and asked me to participate in one this past week.

They feature a wall artist and a table artist. My set up is very beige on purpose, so that my dark brass jewelry shows better. I transported and displayed my jewelry in trays.

This was due to only having 2 hours to set up and very little time (30 mins!) to tear down. The trays fit nicely into the 2 green boxes at the back of my table, used as risers. The only “beige” exception is my moss display for my enameled flower necklaces – everyone loves this fun display.

The trunk show was a blast, and a big success!

  1. Cynthia, I love the beige displays for your dark brass – a very classy combination. Your enameled flower necklaces on moss display looks just like a colorful miniature garden – beautiful and unusual in a jewelry display. You made really good use of your limited table space – it looks very shoppable! 🙂

    I love the enameled flowers in the clay pot!! Brilliant display idea.

  3. I love the enamel flowers in the flower pot! Really looks good and probably drew people closer to see what that was.

    Speaking of drawing your potential customer closer to your jewelry, I would like to offer this suggestion to those who used flat display boxes that stack very nicely for transport. To keep those boxes from just being flat on the table you can tilt them at an angle using a simple business card holder. Originally I bought a dozen or so and was going to enhance them with my fused glass and sell them at shows. However, that didn’t pan out so I use them to tilt my display boxes at an angle allowing a little better view of the jewelry, especially from a distance. I just prop up the box on the level where the cards are put in. You can also use rubber door stops (if you can find them and this is the more expensive way) or make your own out of wood (wedge) and a little rubber shelf liner that keeps the boxes from slipping.
